As well as the usual demands encountered by our male colleagues, women leaders in business often need to navigate a whole set of additional challenges such as being in the minority, barriers to career progression or determining our own authentic leadership style.

And following a study conducted by McKinsey’s in 2011 they recommended that companies spend more time coaching women and offering them leadership training in order to help develop their careers and overcome barriers to advancement.
